Distributed energy generation is also known as decentralized energy generation. It is the term used for systems that generate electricity near the point of consumption, as opposed to centralized generation sources such as large utility-owned power plants, that require long distance transmission lines to transmit energy.
The market size for DEG systems has been estimated on the basis of regional installed capacity and indicators in end use industries. This report also discusses various technologies, applications and numerous end uses of DEG systems. All the market revenues have been calculated by considering the whole system installation cost including numerous components and parts of DEG systems (turbines/engines/prime movers, generators, fuel recovery units, compressors, filters, valves, pipes, boilers, chillers, control systems and enclosures) plus installation labor, engineering and project management cost during the construction period.
The major technologies include solar photovoltaic, combined heat and power (CHP), wind turbine, reciprocating engines, micro-turbine and fuel cells. The major end uses considered under the DEG systems market cover the residential sector, buildings & institutions and commercial & industrial establishments. Major applications analyzed in this report include on grid and off grid systems. The market is also analyzed based on geography that constitutes different regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa (MEA) and Rest of the World (RoW).
The price for DEG systems are volatile in nature and keeps on changing depending upon the technology, application and the type of end use market. The prices of overall DEG systems are decreasing, leading to a slight squeeze in profit margins. The study presents a comprehensive assessment of the stakeholder strategies, winning imperatives for them by segmenting the DEG market as below
